This was given as a gift to a young woman who is a PhD candidate in chemistry.

She loved the book--to be a woman in a "hard" science still has its significant challenges, and young women in particular are often amazed at what grit the women going before them had, and what grit it is going to take them to "go where no man has gone before."

Reading about your role models, or finding role models, is a wonderful thing for any student.

I think this is a great read for any woman interested in science. It isn't a man-basher book which I like a lot and interviews a lot of women!
